Tunc Technique

Each surgery has rational methods and permanent steps accepted in time by its specialists. A new era has taken place for laparoscopic renal surgery by the “Tunc Technique” as it caused a change in classical steps and led to the requestioning of even anatomic landmarks. Advantages of this technique are well-documented in the literature.

As for the classical renal surgery, the first step was to find the ureter (the canal between kidney and bladder) and to follow the ureter so that surgeons would go down to renal hilus(artery and vein).

In the Tunc technique, nephrectomy starts from the upper pole dissection of kidney, which leads to the detection of renal hilus.

Tunc technique enables the minimization of the total time of surgery by one third resulting in the reduction of potential complication risks.

Actually, nephrectomy is a serious surgery. So with laparoscopic surgery, shorter operation time and lower complication risks will provide a better outcome for both patients and their relatives.
